When Duke's owner takes him back, he decides to give Harry another German Shepherd Dog, but it's clearly the same dog, its fur has the same color pattern. Even though Duke gets into the SUV and the "other dog" gets out in the same shot, there must have been someone inside who slipped a different collar on it (notice how the owner pauses for a couple of seconds before he lets the other dog out) See more »
OK...this movie may not be academy award material, but it does have a quaint little charm to it that makes it an enjoyable little movie. The relationship that builds between Jack Nicholson and Ellen Barkin goes from little more than an intended con job (he's being blackmailed to steal a manuscript for a tell-all book from one of his clients) on the part of Nicholson to something very strong between the two. A strong friendship also develops between Nicholson and the dog he uses as part of his scam. The movies funniest moment stem from Nicholson's frustration over his feelings for Barkin and what he has to do to get the manuscript. Although not widely received by critics and considers a rather large flop, Man Trouble has a sincere charm to it that makes it a gem...as long as you're not a snobby wannabe film critic, i believe if you give the film a chance, you will come to really enjoy it.
